About Alicia Park
Alicia is an experienced educator, with a strong passion for Ed Tech, STEM and empowering young girls to explore the possibilities of working with technology. Alicia attended Holy Family University and graduated in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree/dual certification in Elementary and Special Education.
Alicia has always enjoyed self learning new technologies and instilling them into her lessons, but knew she was destined for something more outside of the classroom. In October 2015, Alicia attended a meetup in Philly hosted by TechGirlz and immediately felt a strong connection towards the mission. Soon after, she began to use her skills to help update and build curriculum for the org, coordinate the blog, and later ventured into outreach. She is now Senior Manager of Program Operations at Creating IT Futures Foundation, Inc. – DBA CompTIA Spark – assisting in middle school expansion programming and leads the TechGirlz Outreach Team to continue to elevate girls’ confidence in technology.
Alicia spends her downtime with her husband and dog, Dottie, taking in beautiful scenery with a walk by the river or escaping to relax down the shore. She’s obsessed with organization, music, finding the best memes to communicate with, and taking photos of the world around her (which end up being mostly of her dog).
“One of my favorite quotes states ‘Empowered Women, Empower Women’ but I think empowered girls make an even bigger impact!
